Youtube do dia penultimo: Greens go all the way with LBJ

That noted Texan vote-rigger, Lyndon Baines Johnson, utilised a notorious thirty-second ad in the 1964 presidential election which more-or-less stated that a vote for Barry Goldwater was a vote for nuclear holocaust. (And this just months after that other great fictional event, the Gulf of Tonkin Incident.)

The Greens have adapted the LBJ masterpiece to convey the threat of climate change. Watch the Greens' 2007 Australian election ad, followed by the US Democrats' 1964 original.
